Storyboard Text

  • Check out the gun show, gentlemen.
  • You can't even see my arms.
  • Sleeping. Seasonal depression. You know, the usual.
  • So, what have you two been up to?
  • Oh..nothing.
  • Uuuuuuuhhhh. I have to go. My mom is calling me.
  • I can practically smell traitor in the air!
  • I think that's the horse, Reggie.
  • David Herold eventually met up with John Wilkes Booth in Maryland. They picked up weapons that Booth had asked Mary Surratt to prepare for his arrival. Once they had their weaponry, they headed off towards Dr. Mudd's house.
  • Did you hear that Booth killed the president?
  • Uuuuuuuuh. I have to go. My mom is calling me.
  • Once David Herold and Lewis Powell arrived at Dr. Mudd's house, Dr. Mudd treated Booth's leg. The two men declined to tell Dr. Mudd that they had just killed the President and attempted to kill the Secretary of State. 
  • Stay here. I'll be right back.
  • Dr. Mudd took Herold into town to try to find a buggy for sale. Herold noticed that the Thirteenth New York Cavalry were setting up camp for their manhunt and ran back to tell Booth the bad news. 
  • I don't know, bro.
  • Where the hell is my letter? How will anyone ever figure out why I would want Lincoln dead?
  • Maybe you're just hungry, Booth. Do you want a sandwich?
  • While Dr. Mudd continued doing his business in town, he eventually found out that Booth killed the President. He was scared of getting caught harboring a fugitive, so he quickly returned to his house and arranged for Herold and Booth to continue their escape with a man named Captain Cox. 
  • Captain Cox hid Herold and Booth in a pine thicket while the search for them moved further south. They hide in the thicket for four days, and Captain Cox found a Confederate spy named Thomas Jones to help them with the rest of their escape.
  • Fine. 
  • At least bring us some snacks. 
  • Captain Cox brought Herold and Booth food, water, and the news during their stay in the pines. Booth became enraged once he realized that his friend didn't give the newspaper his written explanation of why he shot President Lincoln. The friend ended up burning his letter out of fear of being associated with the crime.
